Michelle Dockery looked absolutely stunning at the world premiere of her new film Downton Abbey in London’s Leicester Square on Monday.

The 37-year-old English actress wore an off-the-shoulder gold sequined gown for the premiere of the film, which is based on the Emmy-winning PBS historical drama series about an aristocratic British family during the post-World War I era The show aired for six seasons from 2010 to 2015.

Dockery was one of several stars of the film to attend the premiere, alongside Elizabeth McGovern, Laura Carmichael, Hugh Bonneville, Dame Maggie Smith and Jim Carter. 

“It felt like we never left,” Dockery, who plays Lady Mary, told Vanity Fair about her and her co-stars reprising their respective roles for the film.

Dockery also made news this week after saying she would be interested in playing a female version of James Bond if asked to do so:


The Downton Abbey film will be set in 1927, thus picking up two years after the events of the 2015 Christmas special.

Downton Abbey is set for a September 20 wide release. Fans of the show will surely be dying to see what new trials and tribulations befall the Crawley family and their servants.
